As discourse regarding the evaluation of teaching has evolved, an established definition of the standards of scholarship of teaching has emerged. Adhering to these standards, it becomes imperative to document teaching practices and investigate methods that support the examination and sharing of teaching practices. Whereas the concept of scholarship of teaching has been defined, little information is available regarding specific tools and processes to support scholarship of teaching.
The purpose of this presentation is to illustrate how course portfolios are one effective tool in documenting teaching practices to support reflective technique and invite peer review. The use of an electronic course portfolio as a flexible tool to support scholarship of teaching will be highlighted. Additionally, challenges and benefits of developing electronic course portfolios will be presented, as well as suggestions to facilitate the development process.
